Forshey will have to register as a sex offender every six months for 25 years.

A message seeking comment was left Wednesday at the office of Forshey’s attorney.

Police said the Springfield Township man sent nude photos to other teenagers during a three-month span beginning in January. He admitted to sending photos of a 14-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl to a boy in Kentucky.
